I'm going to be brutally honest right now: sometimes I just don't feel like Christians exist outside of my world. I mean, I know other people who follow Christ, I know that those people have friends who follow Christ, but do I honestly believe that any exist beyond that? I find myself assuming that everyone I meet (who is not my friend/friend of my friend)could not possibly believe.
could not possibly believe this crazy idea that I follow.
would not be so silly as to buy into a Christian worldview.
I understand why I am a Christian, but I cannot understand why someone else would be. I suffer from a fundamental doubt that someone outside of my world could/would/already could/would believe in the outrageous concept that God exits, or that Love (of God and Neighbor) is the only thing that matters, or that by serving we actually overcome.
So I'm completely, jawdroppingly, flabberghastingly surprised when I come down to Atlanta, Georgia for teacher job training, and immediately I meet 30 people who have similar/the same belief in Christ that I have.
Why am i surprised?
